A Car-Free neighborhood in California?

The plan calls for 6,000 residential units, shops, hotels and entertainment facilities to create a pedestrian-friendly new San Francisco neighborhood. The housing units (30 percent of which are to be designated affordable to low and very low-income residents) will have twice the density of the Marina, thereby allowing enough space on the island for a 300-acre park and an organic demonstration farm. Every home on the island will be within a 15-minute walk of a transit hub that offers a short ferry ride to San Francisco. This means that on Treasure Island, you'll never need -- or want -- a personal automobile.
